  • The Hennessy's

    “After some 15 years of visiting this area, Salt House stands out as a real beauty; the view, grounds and rooms are fantastic.”

    Everything we needed was here and the thought behind equipping the kitchen is very impressive; a bonus when restaurants busy :-) The perpetually changing panorama visible from the lounge and bedrooms has been a treat, balm for the soul. We love this house and hope to return. Thanks and best wishes ***********(signature)
